The new ZenUI 5 combines powerful intelligence, unrivaled clarity and smooth responsiveness to make it the best version yet. We've listened to you, and made it easier to use than ever, adding great new features and improving those you love. And it's so smart, it knows what you need before you do. Say hello to ZenUI 5, your ever-ready new companion!
Theme and Lock Screen
Match your style with fuss-free customization
It's now easier than ever to customize the look of ZenUI 5 to match your own personal style — no hassle, no fuss! The redesigned settings page makes it simple to choose multiple sources to enrich your lock-screen slideshow: preloaded wallpapers, a wide variety of online wallpapers, or personal photos from your Gallery or Smart People Album. Lock-screen slideshows now integrate seamlessly with your chosen themes, so you can apply a new theme without losing your existing photo slideshow.
Clear UI Experience
Simpler, cleaner and easier to use
The brand-new ZenUI 5 is cleaner and simpler than ever before, making it easier to use and enjoy. We've simplified many of the settings and fine-tuned the design based on millions of tests, surveys and owner feedback. You might not spot all the changes we've made, but that's not important: all that matters is that you notice how much easier and intuitive ZenFone is to use!
Smart Screen On
Non-stop everything with Smart Screen On
There's nothing worse than a phone display that turns itself off when you're in the middle of doing something fun or important. With Smart Screen On, that'll never happen on ZenUI 5: its clever face detection knows when you're in front of the screen, and keeps the display turned on. Simple, but smart!
Your personal app assistant
ZenUI 5 not only puts more smart in your smartphone, it puts more you. Suggest Apps combines the power of machine learning with personalized training to analyze your daily app habits and predict the apps you're most likely to use. It then groups these in an easily-accessible list at the bottom of the All Apps screen. So there's no need to keep searching for your favorite apps — Suggest Apps does it for you!
Smart People Album
Turn your lock screen into a smart photo album
Fed up with trying to pick and edit the best photos of your favorite people for the lock screen? ZenUI 5 can automatically select the best photos of people you specify, and intelligently crop the images to fit on the lock screen. In just a few easy steps, you can turn your lock screen into a slideshow of the people who matter to you, and turn your ZenFone into a smart digital photo album that showcases the special people in your life!
Battery Care Plans
Go further, last longer with intelligent charging
ZenUI 5 introduces new intelligent charging features to maximize your battery's lifespan and provide total protection. Scheduled Charging dynamically adjusts the charging rate between times you choose, slowing down the battery ageing process. AI Charging automatically determines the best times to charge by learning from your charging behavior.
Keep your phone running faster with OptiFlex 3.0
The secret behind the ever-smooth ZenUI 5 experience is the brand-new OptiFlex 3.0. This keeps as many of your most-used apps as possible loaded in memory, so they're always ready to go. With ZenUI 5 you'll never have to hang around waiting for your favorite apps to load!
Level up your gaming with Game Genie
ZenUI 5 includes the latest Game Genie, your gaming sidekick. Use Speed Booster to enjoy an optimized, lag-free performance, or use Search to find the hottest cheats and walkthroughs. Live-stream your gameplay like a pro or record it to watch again later and analyze your moves or rethink your strategy — and if you don't want to show your face to your opponents, just choose a still image instead of using the front camera. And Game Genie now lets you mute alerts for uninterrupted fun. There's never a dull game with Game Genie!
Two accounts, one app, zero hassle
With the latest Twin Apps feature, you can easily create copies of supported apps on your phone, so you can stay logged in to two accounts simultaneously — whether it's work and personal accounts on social media or messaging, or two gaming accounts to boost your scores and get faster upgrades. And with brand-new features such as simultaneous dual login for your original and cloned games on Google Play Games, and the ability to back up the data of cloned social apps — such as Line — to Google Drive, you can do even more. The days of constantly switching accounts are over!
Enjoy a more private experience
ZenUI 5 takes your privacy and security very seriously. The face unlock feature not only allows near-instant phone unlocking, but it also works with apps and the Hidden Cabinet to keep prying eyes away from your personal stuff. Everything's more private with face unlock! And with the new Lift to Check Phone motion gesture, you don't even have to press any buttons when you want to unlock your phone.
